Beginning Tai Chi Classes in San Rafael

We are very pleased to announce new Beginning Tai Chi classes in San Rafael at the main community center on B street on Monday nights at 6:30 PM.  The new Beginning Tai Chi classes in San Rafael start on September 12, 2016.

If you have looking for beginning Tai Chi lessons you have found them.  The Beginning Tai Chi classes in San Rafael are oriented towards new students and will include detailed and careful instruction with plenty of repetition and individual correction and attention.   We’ll focus on improving everyone’s health, developing better balance, feeling stronger, and having more energy.

Benefits of  Tai Chi Chuan:

Heal Yourself & Recover from Injury & Illness with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi is a great way to heal your back and relieve back pain!  Tai Chi is great for relieving knee pain and arthritis. Tai Chi can help you rebuild your health after many types of illnesses and recover from illnesses that weaken the immune system or internal organs.  Tai Chi also helps you to improve blood circulation and lower your blood pressure.

Relieve Stress and Relax Your Mind and Body with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi is very calming and relaxing.  During Tai Chi practice you move slowly, focus on your body and breathe deeply.  This helps your mind to relax.  As your mind relaxes your emotions calm down.  As your emotions become calm your body relaxes.  The more your body relaxes the easier it is to relax your mind even more.  As your skill in Tai Chi increases profound states of relaxation occur.

Improve Balance, Coordination & Awareness with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi is incredibly effective for improving the your balance!  Falling down is a source of dangerous injuries, especially if your bones are not as strong as they once were.  Tai Chi improves your balance and will help you avoid falls.  Tai Chi increases your awareness of your body, posture and patterns of movement.  This improves your coordination for all types of activities.

Improve Flexibility with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi classes include gentle stretching and the postures of Tai Chi themselves open and rotate your joints.  This heals your joints and improves your flexibility.

Improve Concentration & Focus with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi improves your concentration and ability to focus your mind.  As westerners we focus on ideas and actions and often ignore our bodies.  Tai Chi focuses your concentration on your bodies alignment and posture and maintains that concentration for consistent periods of time.

Feel Stronger with Tai Chi –

Tai Chi builds your strength.  When you are practicing Tai Chi your legs are bent, your arms are raised and you move slowly.  Bending your legs and moving slowly strengthens your thighs, calves, and feet.  Holding your arms up and moving them through the many postures of Tai Chi builds strength especially in the shoulders, back and upper arms.  Although you will definitely become stronger you will not get an over muscled look.  For women who want to look fit and still have a graceful feminine figure without excess muscle Tai Chi is an excellent choice.  Tai Chi does not make your arms look wiry or stringy but smooth and strong.

Have Fun with Tai Chi!

Tai Chi is fun to practice and learn.  If you like learning new skills and new ideas Tai Chi is fun!  There are lots of new things to learn and they are good for you!  We also just have fun in class and relax and enjoy ourselves.  Tai Chi is more fun than lifting weights or using machines and being on treadmills etc.  Tai Chi connects your mind and body and feels great to learn.

You can practice Tai Chi virtually anywhere.

You can go to parks or on hikes to beautiful scenery and then practice Tai Chi it is really pleasant!

Enjoy the Beautiful Choreography of Tai Chi –

Tai Chi is considered to be an art because it is so beautiful. The movements are flowing, graceful and pleasing to watch and to practice.

Meet New Friends with Tai Chi-

Tai Chi Class is a great place to meet interesting new people and make friends.  Tai Chi players are cool people who take care of themselves and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.  They are fun people who like to enjoy life!

Convenient After Work Time

These new Monday night Tai Chi classes start slightly later than my other classes at 6:30 PM so it should be easier for people to make class after work.
